The Rock-itt : August 2011
Last month Manly was rocked with some old and young talent at the Old Manly Boatshed. Sydney based bands, Calling Mayday and 80s legends, Dragon entertained the patrons with som e new and evergreen music which had the foundations of the Old Shed creaking and groaning. Calling Mayday are a red hot outfit, almost all female bar one, who play power-punk and grunge, pop and rock. They opened the show for headliners, Dragon, rocking the audience with a tight original set. The band ripped out with a new one from their repertoire, “Play that song again”, which got the punters focused and settled Calling Mayday down. From then on they cranked away, belting out som e of their older material and blending it with some of their new arrangements. They also threw in the classic ‘Animals’ track, “House of the Rising Sun” which really got the joint hopping. There was a birthday party going on at the same time all this was happening and Calling Mayday connected with it and really gave the function a night to remember. Calling Mayday has two EP’s under their belt and their killer tracks, along with videos, can be viewed on their website: www.callingmayday.fourfour.com This band has supported a number of big acts and have been very busy touring around Sydney and Melbourne. So check them out... they rock! Next up was headliners, Dragon. Original and co-founding member of Dragon, Todd Hunter, has reformed this legendary band that first formed back in 1973. They have sold over 2 million records over 30 years. Mark Dragon and Calling Mayday at Manly Boatshed Photos and rev iew by Dav eTozer.com.au www.facebook.com /davetozer
